    Disney/ABC TV has begun making long-feared layoffs as part of a broader restructuring of its broadcast business, with rumors swirling that bigger moves—including a possible sale of ABC—are coming. Deadline first reported the staff reductions on Thursday, saying they could impact up to 200 employees across Disney and ABC properties. An ABC source with knowledge of the situation said that the cuts will hit upward of 40 of its employees on the East Coast and still more out west. Multiple people at ABC told Splinter that there is a widespread belief at the network that the belt-tightening could be tied...

    Disney/ABC Television Group has begun laying off employees, part of a long-anticipated restructuring and reallocation of resources at the Walt Disney Company’s non-sports broadcast and cable television arm. A source tells Variety that the company began notifying affected employees Thursday morning. The volume of employees impacted is said to be significantly lower than the 10% workforce cut that had been speculated when news broke of the layoff plan six weeks ago. Cuts are impacting all the group’s entertainment units, including ABC Entertainment ABC Studios, Disney Channel, DisneyXD, Disney Junior, and Freeform — but impact is expected to be minimal on...
  • Alex Morgan after Disney World incident: 'I can’t imagine what black people go through'

    It may be the most magical place on Earth, but sports stars are not exempt from the law of the land at Disney World. Olympic medalist Alex Morgan discovered this the hard way earlier this month, when she and a few of her fellow professional soccer-playing friends were escorted from Epcot Center for being intoxicated and agressive on Oct. 1.
  • Disney, Weinstein Company Could Face Harassment Lawsuits as Scandal Widens

    Big Hollywood (Breitbart) ^ | October 11, 2017 | John Nolte
    Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg, who ran the Walt Disney Company during the Harvey Weinstein years (1993-2005), have both denied any knowledge of Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct during those years. This would include any sexual harassment settlements made during that time. The Weinstein Company also denies any knowledge. These denials could be tested in a court of law should those alleging harassment and abuse choose to press the issue of corporate liability. In 1979, two brothers from the outer boroughs of New York, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, had a dream and founded Miramax. Named after their parents, Miriam and Max,...

    A whole lot of fur has been flying since last Thursday, when The New York Times published a game-changing investigative story about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct that in lightning speed brought the mogul to his knees. He apologized and took an immediate leave of absence from the company he co-founded, but that wasn’t enough. His board members and legal advisers have been resigning en masse. And as new, ugly details emerge of three decades of settlements for sex-related offenses, he’s quickly becoming a national pariah. I applaud The New York Times and writers Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey for getting...

    """Disney CEO Bob Iger Influenced ESPN’s Jemele Hill Discussion, Decided Not to Punish Her for Calling President Trump a ‘White Supremacist’""" Disney CEO Bob Iger, who is mulling a 2020 run for the Democratic nomination, says that he got personally involved in ESPN’s decision on whether to punish SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill, after she tweeted that President Trump is a “white supremacist.” While speaking at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit on Tuesday, Iger said he decided the mess at ESPN was important enough for him to pull rank and get directly involved with the cable network’s disciplinary moves. Iger’s...

    The Patriot Post ^ | 09-22-17 | David Limbaugh
    Does the political left — which dominates the mainstream media, Hollywood, academia and the Democratic Party — really believe its ubiquitous charges of racism against conservatives, or are they a sick ploy to discredit, ruin and defeat its political opponents? During President Obama’s tenure, a conservative could hardly oppose Obama on policy grounds without being accused of racism. It didn’t matter that conservatives had fought Hillary Clinton’s health care plan in the ‘90s because they opposed socialized medicine. It didn’t matter that they had opposed Bill Clinton’s tax hikes. Their opposition to Obamacare and Obama’s proposed tax increases had to...

    The din during the intermission of a recent performance of the Broadway-bound musical “Frozen” might have broken decibel records at Denver Center’s Buell Theater. No doubt the house’s hum was amped by the higher-pitched voices of the booster-seat crowd, but if Disney Theatrical Productions’ aim was to age up the demographic of the animated blockbuster’s stage adaptation, they’ve succeeded. In its live rendition of “Let It Go,” the signature tune from the 2014 Oscar winner, the musical wows adults as much as kids with a brilliant spectacle — as poignant as it is jaw-dropping — that should ensure the production...

    Billy Magnussen, a white actor, has been cast to play a prince in Disney’s upcoming “Aladdin” live action remake but many social media users criticized the move, accusing the studio giant of "whitewashing" the film's plot. Magnussen, who played a prince in Disney’s “Into the Woods,” was slated to play Prince Anders, who was not a character in the 1992 animated version. The Telegraph reported that Magnussen’s character would be Aladdin’s rival to winning over Princess Jasmine’s heart. Social media critics slammed the casting decision Tuesday and accused Disney of “whitewashing” the plot of the film. One social media user...

    Another Star Wars director change from Lucasfilm just now, which has announced that Colin Trevorrow has left Star Wars: Episode IX.

We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon. Trevorrow, whose blockbuster cred was set with the huge success of the Jurassic Park franchise reboot Jurassic World, was confirmed as director of the...

We have yet another example of moonbat child abuse: Hayley McLean took to her parenting blog, Sparkles and Stretchmarks, to voice her outrage that Disneyland Paris initially told her that “it is not possible to book Princess for a Day for a boy,” when she asked about booking the activity for her 3-year-old boy, Noah. Young Noah enjoys dressing up as Disney princesses, especially Elsa from the critically acclaimed film Frozen. His mother wanted to give him an early Christmas present by taking him to the nearby Disneyland Hotel to enjoy the Princess for a...

    Disney Junior released an episode of a cartoon aimed at preschoolers that depicted two "married" lesbian moms. Doc McStuffins, a show about an aspiring doctor who "fixes" toys with help from friends, featured a family led by two "moms" in its August 5 episode "The Emergency Plan." Although Doc McStuffins has been praised by many cultural critics for its depiction of a young African-American female doctor, it's now under fire for its most recent episode pushing same-sex "marriage." Here are 12 facts about Doc McStuffins. The creator of the show, Chris Nee, is in a same-sex 'marriage.' Michelle Obama...
